The edit is done!
I was fortunate enough to spend two days trekking around NorCal with Terry Adams the world renowned flatland bmx’er. The schedule was tight with only two days to drive 200+ miles, hit five college campus, stop in downtown SF to ride, and do a demo at Circle A Skateboards in San Jose. Terry was just coming off another college tour that kept him on the road for a few weeks, but he was super cool and willing to work on getting certain shots which turned out sick! Thank Terry!
The Boreal and Northstar Butter Cup highlight reel is finished and I’m Just waiting for final approval before I can release it. I’m pretty stoked on how it turned out and I want to thank Damon, his brother Dakin, and Mad Dog for helping out! Typically filming these events is an one man show, but I figured this was a good project to test out how the Canon 5D & 7D would hold up in a “event” style setting. Having the extra man power present allowed us to play around with the cameras and their settings while making sure the main action was still being captured. A few of the 5D “lifestyle” shots made it into the Boreal section and quite a few of the 7D shots “action shots” made it into the Northstar section. Overall I’m very impressed with how well the cameras held up and they complemented the HVX200 footage well. There were a few technical hurdles to overcome in post-production, but I think that discussion is best saved for another post.
